Focus on Patient Well-Being

He continues to be fascinated by the connection between a healthy mouth and a healthy body. This shows in his work, through his focus on improving his patients' overall well-being. He takes time to build close relationships with his patients and provide each and every one of them with personalized care.

Dr. Tieken enjoys continuing to grow in his dental profession and being on the cutting edge. He stays up-to-date on the latest dental trends by taking courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

Giving Back to the Community

Dr. Tieken is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is a longtime participant in its Give Back a Smile program, which provides restorative dentistry services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Dr. Tieken loves his local community. He established his dental practice just 10 miles away from where he grew up. And he participates in many community service projects such as providing dental screenings to area school children.

In His Free Time

In his free time, Dr. Tieken enjoys traveling with his wife, Lori, reading and writing, being outdoors, and boating. He also enjoys following sports, especially his alma mater Baylor University and The University of Mississippi where his daughter attends.
